Physical Development – Fine motor control skills

If you would like to continue with the handwriting patterns this week. You were doing tunnels before half term- now it is a chance to do long and short sides on your tunnels.  (These will help for ascender letters – the letters that travel up, beyond the line. –l and t) Can you make them better than yesterday?

PDF of picture. See how many you can do in a row – can you keep them all the same size?

There are some short film clips to use on the Fine Motorskills page under the swirl on the class page. (apologies for the angle!)

Maths - Number

I have added a episode from the Number Jacks today.

The Number Jacks are sharing numbers by halving-

Can you have a look with your objects – 8 becomes 4.

4 becomes 2

2 becomes 1

Can the children use the correct term – half of 8 is 4, half of 4 is 2, half of 2 is 1.  Do they make the connection to the double work they did before?

I have attached a task for you to day – putting half of the bees on the flowers. (see the PDF)

## NUMBERJACKS | Half Time | S2E10

The Numbertaker is halving the number of things - 4 is out there at the double. Numberjacks: 3, 4, 5, 6, 8 Agents: 37, 58, 99 FUN FACT! WHAT is Numberjacks? ...

## Can you work out half the bees?

Expressive Arts

Can you use your best pencil control today to colour in some of the fish from the Rainbow fish story – your grown up could draw them for you or you could print of from the PDF I have attached.
